Taster days

Not sure what branch of postgraduate dentistry you'd like to explore? Watch this space for announcements regarding free taster days to introduce potential students to our postgraduate degree courses. These events are designed to give participants insight into the way our degree courses work and an opportunity to meet staff and see our facilities. Most taster days are also worth several hours of verifiable CPD.

Please note, many departments and programme leads are also happy to arrange visits at other times. Contact us to enquire 

Taster sessions are only open to applicants with an approved dental qualification.
